The official website for the anime project for Naoshi Arakawa's Farewell, My Dear Cramer (Sayonara Watashi no Cramer) manga revealed on Sunday that Mikako Komatsu will perform the television anime's ending theme song "Kuyashii koto wa Kettobase" (Kicking Frustrating Things). As previously revealed, Aika Kobayashi will perform the opening theme song "Ambitious Goal." The commercial below previews the song.

The television anime will premiere on April 4 on Tokyo MX. The overall anime project will star:

Miyuri Shimabukuro as Nozomi Onda Shion Wakayama as Sawa Echizen Kouki Uchiyama as Tetsuji Yamada Ryota Ohsaka as Kaoru Takei Ryoko Shiraishi as Junpei Onda Koji Yusa as Kōzō Sameji Shimba Tsuchiya as Yasuaki Tani Tomoyo Kurosawa as Sumire Suō Aoi Yūki as Midori Soshizaki Shiho Kokido as Aya Shiratori Yu Shimamura as Eriko Tase Marina Yamada as Makoto Miyasaka Rena Maeda as Rui Kikuchi Azumi Waki as Ayumi Kishi Misano Sakai as Saori Koshi Anzu Haruno as Noriko Okachimachi Rena Hasegawa as Karina Kakogawa Yuko Kaida as Naoko Nо̄mi Junichi Suwabe as Gо̄ro Fukatsu Saori Hayami as Mizuki Kaji Yui Ishikawa as Haruna Itō Makoto Koichi as Mao Tsukuda Yui Makino as Chika Kirishima Aika Kobayashi as Yū Tenma Hiroko Kiso as Alice Adatara Nichika Omori as Kei Hanabusa Takaya Kuroda as Eiken Asuka

Eiga Sayonara Watashi no Cramer First Touch, the film part of the project, will premiere in early summer, delayed from its originally planned April 1 opening. The anime's website noted that the delay was due to "various circumstances," but expressed hopes of a resolution to the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

The film's story will adapt the Sayonara, Football prequel manga, which follows Nozomi in junior high school.

Seiki Takuno (Boarding School Juliet, Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches) is directing the TV series and film at LIDEN FILMS, and Natsuko Takahashi (Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, Cutie Honey Universe) is writing the script. Eriko Itō (Hamatora, Ane Log) is designing the characters, and Masaru Yokoyama (Your Lie in April, Fruits Basket) is composing the music.

Toei is distributing the film. Aika Kobayashi is performing the film's theme song "Sora wa Dare ka no Mono Ja Nai" (The Sky Doesn't Belong to Anyone).

Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga digitally simultaneously with its Japanese release, and also plans to release the manga in print. The company describes the manga:

With no soccer accomplishments to speak of during the entirety of Sumire Suo's junior high school years, the young wing gets an odd offer. Suo's main rival, Midori Soshizaki, invites her to join up on the same team in high school, with a promise that she'll never let Suo “play alone.” It's an earnest offer, but the question is whether Suo will take her up on it. Thus the curtain opens on a story that collects an enormous cast of individual soccer-playing personalities!

Arakawa launched the manga in May 2016.
